Grand River Veterinary Hospital

Emergency Process

When you need urgent veterinary care and our hospital is not open, we suggest you call the following Emergency veterinary service. 

They will fax us documentation of your visit, including reason for your visit, medical notations, and medication dispensed so that we can follow up with you on the next business day.

It is always best to call ahead to let them know you are coming and what’s wrong, so they can be ready for you when you arrive.  Do remember that Emergency clinics, like our human hospital Emergency rooms, operate on a triage system – the animals requiring the most urgent care are seen first (if that’s not you, be happy!).  The good news is that veterinary clients rarely wait as long for their pet to be seen as people at the human hospital!!
